Cesc Fabregas was signed some time ago, but thanks to the World Cup we've had to wait until now for him to link up with the squad. That means that the official site's interview with him is the first time we've get to hear what the midfielder has to say about joining the club. Sadly, he does not troll Arsenal, but if he hangs out for long enough with Andre Schurrle I'm sure we can get that to change.
I thought I was at the right age and I believed I wanted a change. I looked at all the offers I had and after speaking to the coach I thought Chelsea was the best decision.
Jose’s teams are always difficult to beat and always difficult to play against. Tactically they are very well-composed and they have discipline. He gets the best out of his players.
Fabregas is naturally rather diplomatic about the qualities of Fernando Torres and fellow newcomer Diego Costa -- they're both good strikers, he says, and he's looking forward to playing with them at club level -- but here's the most important part of the interview. Why are you here, Cesc?
My ambitions are to win absolutely everything.
I can get behind that sort of attitude.
